SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:5 Los montes tiemblan de Úl, y los collados se deslíen; y la tierra se abrasa delante de su presencia, y el mundo, y todos los que en Úl habitan.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt , etc.] As Sinai of old did, when the Lord descended on it, ( Exodus 19:18 Judges 5:5).
Mountains figuratively signify kings and princes; and hills large countries, as Jarchi and Abarbinel observe, and the inhabitants of them; particularly the kingdoms and nations belonging to the Assyrian empire, which would tremble and quake, and their hearts melt with fear, when they should hear of the destruction of Nineveh their chief city; and of the devastation made by the enemy there and in other parts, under the direction of the Lord of hosts; his power and providence succeeding him: and the earth is burnt at his presence ; either when he withholds rain from it, and so it be comes parched and burnt up with the heat of the sun; or when he rains fire and brimstone on it, as he did on Sodom and Gomorrah; or consumes any part of it with thunder and lightning, as he sometimes does; nay, if he but touch the mountains, they smoke; (see <19A432> Psalm 104:32); yea, the world, and all that dwell therein ; as in the last day, at the general conflagration, when the world, and all the wicked inhabitants of it, will be burnt up; (see 2 Peter 3:10).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-8 - About a hundred years before, at Jonah's preaching, the Ninevite repented, and were spared, yet, soon after, they became worse tha ever. Nineveh knows not that God who contends with her, but is tol what a God he is. It is good for all to mix faith with what is her said concerning Him, which speaks great terror to the wicked, an comfort to believers. Let each take his portion from it: let sinner read it and tremble; and let saints read it and triumph. The anger of the Lord is contrasted with his goodness to his people. Perhaps the are obscure and little regarded in the world, but the Lord knows them The Scripture character of Jehovah agrees not with the views of prou reasoners. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is slow to wrat and ready to forgive, but he will by no means acquit the wicked; an there is tribulation and anguish for every soul that doeth evil: but who duly regards the power of his wrath?
